2011 was cathartic for me. Going back to back in 2015 made me as happy as Test rugby could. If we do the three-peat in 2019, I'd suggest the RWC could be irrevocably damaged.
Let it burn
My next door neighbour has just been diagnosed with COVID-19 and rushed to hospital.
He's been put on one of the new Dyson ventilators.
He's picking up nicely now.
Oh Man! I was typing a reply saying that is a good news story and then realised the thread I was in.
You almost got sucked right in..... I'll get my coat
Seriously, though, we talked about this with Henry as well. They will put systems in place to generate the players with attributes they need. Hansen's just done this wtih props - get mobile, or get gone. Simple.
It's about systems. We don't have any of note.
MacQueen and his team came together at just the right time and it took more than a year to get them pointed in the same direction
Was McKenzie on track before he fiddled and got caught?
Hard to say. From all reports, he had his favorites and would stick with them regardless.
Maybe his attitude was better (or better expressed) than Cheika. But look at that tweet from Quade - does that look like the culture was of a high standard when that guy is your first choice?
Genia's got an attitude problem as well. Many in Australia will refuse to countenance that.
While the Reds were winning, nobody cared
Some of the bad eggs, like Genia, are gone now anyway. You guys need new up and comers and someone to change the culture. Wait, I have just the man
A lot of fathers here, just imagine your little girl brings home her new boyfriend to show you. In walks that fat fuck, do you reach for the machete you have stashed in the shed or run next door to grab your neighbours .22 ?
I think you'll need a .303
Should have just glassed his girlfriend or shat in a hallway, pissed in his own mouth or maybe some sort of gang sexcapade like those much better role models out there.
In other words a typical Saturdee night when Craig Gower was playing
Foolah didn't mention bestiality. So Mitchell Pearce is in the clear right?
@Bovidae safe is not a word I would associate with Reiko
Well he's not Japanese, (and beautiful, wise and child don't really fit) so it must be Rieko.
Yeah him too
@mariner4life I saw few minutes of an article on Sunday TV show. It was about cyber bullying and featured some woman who fronts an NRL news show and Anthony Sebold. They had an interview with a guy who used to work high up for FB who said they purposely don't censor content because stuff that enrages users makes them use the platform more than not. As you say they are profit driven not politically driven
The bit I find the funniest is the misinformation implying that Jo got the prosecutor fired to protect Hunter where the reason that everyone wanted the guy fired was that he was the corrupt one and was being too lenient in his investigations
The reason that you happen to accept as the truth. My view is this action by Joe stinks (really bad). And whats worse (as I believe a good number of politicians are corrupt as all hell) the fool bragged about it on video.
You seem intent to trial Biden by twitter. I am sure the authorities have more in depth methods of investigation, and they seem to think its all clear. But keep digging if you must
Already a question mark on availability of Ardie, Reece and Nepo due to baby-watch. If this comes true then match day squad will change.
yes, hello, my name is mariner4life and i have a question
if you are a professional rugby player from NZ, why are you timing babies for mid to late October? in a normal year all 3 of those guys would be expecting to jet off to Europe about now.
Clearly they weren't thinking about timing....
I'm not trying to claim that they are completely independent, but also think that they aren't quite the one-eyed monster many make them out to be. After all they provide Trump himself with his biggest lie and inference tool It's only when he directly pushes known disinformation that they 'block' it.
Are you the best person to fairly adjudicate on this matter though
It is funny you should call Crucial's judgement into question
Based on his own post regarding Trump. I doubt if am the best person to pass judgement as well. But who is now. Most are either pro or anti Trump and see everything through these (often invisible to them) beliefs.
This is true. Many who post on here are firmly in one camp or another. Which is the same on most political threads. But this thread, like the situation in the US, is more polarised
@Snowy I have a weber gas that I no longer use but is ready and waiting. Great build quality
Does Fozzie even really matter?
holy shit. How many "well dur" articles are you reading at the moment?
Ben Darwin spends an enormous amount of time looking at numbers to reach conclusions everyone already knows.
The surname is quite apt
The smartest rugby minds in the world come from NZ
and they all have coaching jobs. Even some of the not so smart ones.
So you are left with the startling insight of Stephen Bates. I mean, look at the guys left to do media. Failed coaches. Players not smart enough to get coaching gigs.
They could at least balance them out with one or two professional sports journos if I would suggest anything....
and who are these professional sports journalists?
And keep in mind, a journalist is only as good as his access. And the NZRU have all the power there. And in a time when they control more and more of the content through their own platforms, it's only going to get worse.
Journalists don't add to panel shows either. Fox League have heaps of them on, and they are all deadshits. They are good for digging up dirt, and making confident faces while they air their guesses, but they don't know any more about how the sport is actually played than you or I. The same goes for the ones on the AFL shows.
I don't watch any of those shows anymore so I don't really care. I guess it isn't rocket science or tiddlywinks so who do we expect to front these shows?
